This modern tale borrows from an old story in establishing Langan, who works on a ship that docks in San Francisco, as a descendant of the Count of Monte Cristo. Crooked Lawyer Brodie sets up a scheme to get at the treasure of Langan's famed ancestor, and using the beautiful blonde Jergens, tries to lure Langan into a trap. Langan proves worthy of his heritage, using a gun instead of a sword, and wins legitimately both his forturne and Jergens. Written by Anonymous

Monte Cristo's descendant and heir
11 July 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

From seaman to seaman in five generations, that's how it has worked for the Dantes family. Glenn Langan plays the great great grandson of the fabled Count Of Monte Cristo who served up the coldest dish of revenge ever in literature. But Glenn hasn't got all those years to waste in the Château D'If like his ancestor. He's been scheduled to die in San Quentin for a murder he got framed for and for which his lawyer Steve Brodie had a big hand in framing.

Langan has no idea who he is nor that he is the heir to a fortune that's like the one Nicholas Cage found in National Treasure. But Brodie a bottom feeding shyster of an attorney has found out and means to get it for himself. In a truly complicated frame, with more plot that would usually characterize a Lippert Picture, Brodie ties a murder to Langan and then gets to represent him in court and throw the case to finish the job.

Figuring in all this is Adele Jergens playing her usual blond femme fatale who actually tricks Langan into marrying him. Kind of dumb, but Langan like a lot of us was letting his hormones talk for him.

This is a nicely done Lippert film much better than average with the obligatory appearance by Sid Melton. Try not to miss this one.
